The History of Wildlife: Engaging Audiences with Museum Collections
About the event
Natural History collections represent a huge source of information. They provide snapshots into the past and allow us to view the history of wildlife over the last few hundred years. However, museums are limited in the number of specimens they can put on display and share with the public, which means the vast majority of material remains in storage, only available to a select few. Matt Hayes will be talking about his work increasing access to the Cambridge University Museum of Zoology butterfly collection, where he is engaging audiences with the stories they preserve. Supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund.
